LS608 Learning Everywhere: Designing Content for Multipurpose Use

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Thursday, March 23


International North

Today’s technology promises access to learning content to everyone, everywhere, but can your content really deliver on this promise? Stuck in inflexible pages, much of today’s learning material is trapped in traditional formal-learning vehicles like courses or presentations. Your content—and the budget, time, and effort you spend creating it—needs to do more to be as effective as possible.

In this session, you’ll learn to think less about “courses” of content and more about the components that give content its value and meaning. You will focus on designing and creating content that can be used to help learners at multiple times of need, from initial formal learning through to application on the job. The session will cover instructional design processes for planning single-source, multipurpose content, as well as development strategies to ensure that your learners can find and use this content no matter what device they choose or need to use.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Strategies for evaluating what content your learners need in order to carry out their roles
  • How to develop and deliver content that is structured, interconnected, and searchable—making it ready for multipurpose use
  • Instructional design approaches to help you plan for single-source, multipurpose content
  • How to kick-start a learning and development process in your organization that supports single-source, multipurpose content creation

Novice to advanced designers, developers, and managers.

Technology discussed in this session:
Responsive design, mobile learning devices, single-source design platforms, and content repositories.
